    Account of the relationship between Queen's University Belfast and its local region and economy. It outlines the fair employment crisis in the 1990s which caused the University significantly to change its employment practices. This is contrasted with its current positive role as an anchor institution with a commitment to social justice and equality which has been incorporated in a Social Charter. The genesis and purpose of the Social Charter is outlined.
